    More on Mullin

    Saw this interesting info on http://www.baseballlibrary.com/ballp...Willard_Mullin

    Mullin was a jovial, party-loving artist, and his lifetime output of more than 10,000 illustrations appeared in the New York World-Telegram six days a week from 1934 until the paper closed in 1966, and in ads, books, magazines, and programs. His first job was with the Los Angeles Herald. He pictured teams in clever personifications : the Brooklyn Bum, St. Louis Swifty (the Cardinals' riverboat gambler), and others. In 1971 he was cited by the cartoonists' association as the sports cartoonist of the century. (NLM)

    1946 Mullins piece

    Found this attached illustration in one of my folks (1946) scrapbooks. The page sports a brief clipping on my dad reaching the majors, along with the cartoon by Mullins. Wonder how many total illustrations he created over his career? That book that Pete referenced looks SUPER (thanks, Pete!), but I'll wager Mullins created far more than they reprinted. What a great American artist!

    Does anyone know of anyplace that sells reproductions of Willard Mullin's cartoons in a size and format that's suitable for framing?

    Seems like "dem Bums" would be nice additions to the walls.
    there's a book of his work:

    You might want to search eBay.

    I have seen items there from time to time.
